Best outdoor watch under £1000?

Discussion in 'Shooting, Hunting and Fishing' started by plunderer, Jul 28, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Must be robust and analogue.

    Mechanical or quartz.

    Any material - steel, stainless or otherwise - titanium - ceramic or 'plastic' and can be brush-finish, sand-blast finish or PVD.

    Choice of bracelets - rubber, steel or fabric.

    Does not need a multiplicity of minor dials, but a 24-hour hand could be useful.

    Or a second time-zone hand.

    Over to you.

  2. G Shock.

    Anyone who drops a grand on a fugly tacky Tag Hauer is a mong.

    Spend the remaining £900 on stuff you actually need.

    We all like a nice watch, I for instance if I had the time and money and the supermodel girlfriend waxing my pole on a daily basis would happily purchase an original Apollo mission era Omega Speedmaster which is functional and stylish.

    Tag Hauers aren't - they just confuse hefty price tags with actually being nice watches.

    Quite agree.
  8. G shock again, a waste of money getting something flashy if its going to be used outdoors. My g shock is still going strong.
  9. G10 from the QM's.

    It's free, it's exchangeable.

    If the QM's 'cough' lose the 1033, you can sell it on ebay as worn by THEM, THOSE etc.

  11. Casio Protrek are ok, I'm also a fan of the Citizen EcoDrive range.
  12. Omega Seamaster if you want to blow the whole grand; if not, as above - G-Shock.
